Beautiful Vintage Stingray Spines

Set of 10

2.5" - 2.75"  

 

• The ray's flat body is designed to allow them to dig in and hide from predators on sandy sea bottoms. 

• Rays inhabit coastal waters including estuaries, lagoons and have been known to tolerate low salinity allowing them to flourish in freshwater rivers.

• There are approximately 70 species in the world.

• The serrated venomous tail spine is actually a "modified scale" known as "dermal denticles"

on sharks, rays and the teeth of a sword fish.

• The barb is a unique weapon as not only can it  "stick" an attacker but also can transmit a venom from its mucus coating.

• They sting only as a defense mechanism.

• Stingrays shed and replace their caudal tail spines...some on a yearly basis.

 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a set of 10 specimen spines.

Size range of 2.5"- 2.75"
